AtticRep tackles the path to forgiveness in the wake of unspeakable tragedy in The Amish Project. Inspired by the 2006 killing of five girls in an Amish schoolhouse in Pennsylvania, the one-woman show explores the aftermath and leaves its star to navigate through seven characters, including the gunman and several of his victims. Though Jessica Dickey’s play is based in truth, the characters are fictional in an effort to balance sensitivity with her mission to create compelling theater. David Connelly directs Sarah Gise in the San Antonio premiere.
